The “plant kingdom rules!” badge.


Whereby the image on this badge in no way condones any particular type of activity.



  1. Although I agree with the badge, I must take exception with the image on it. I don’t think it looks like Cannibis (it should have dentate margins). However I think it very much resembles Agave, and that makes one think of tequila…so it’s all good.

  2. Ha. That old chesnut.

    Q: So you’re a botanist?

    A: Yes

    Q: You grow pot then?

    A: Ummm?

    Q: But you can advise me on my hydro set-up, right?

    A: No. Some dude in Amsterdam can advise you.

    Or, at customs at the airport.

    Q: You’re a botanist?

    A: Yes

    Q: Have you any plant specimens

    A: No.

    Q: I mean, not even those “specimens”.

    A: Well, no. As a botanist I don’t usually carry 4 kg of pot in a large boogie board bags everytime I travel. But thanks for asking anyhow. You just never know with a botanist.

    But I should submit an “I’m a botanist and I hate orchids. Don’t ask me to name it – because I don’t care” badge. Because it isn’t all about frickin’ orchids.
